Baby Steps

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

I have been seriously struggling with my lifestyle and my motivation lately, and have tried numerous times to get back on track. The problem is I would sign up for challenges in different groups, but as soon as I messed up I would give up.
I did alot of thinking over the weekend and realized that I am being too critical of myself, and that I am supposed to be taking baby steps, not going from fat to perfect in one day.
I had to remind myself that if I mess up all I have to do is jump right back in where I left off and do what I am supposed to do, not give up alltogether.
So now I am RE-DONE, giving myself a DO-OVER, and trying to remember that I can have all the DO-OVERs I need in order to get DONE!!!

    Hey fellow DONE girl & 1 Ton Challenger! You are nto to give up this time! at 1 Ton we all mess up, at least once a month, but we keep going. Baby steps is all you need to get to your destination, once step at a time! I'm not leting you give up on us since you are a newbie at 1 Ton! The next time you mess up & are ready to give up, you write me, I'll help you up, give you a kick in your DONE butt, & tell you to keep moving!!!!

    I, too, have been struggling. It just seems like my motivation went out the window. I feel really disappointed in myself, especially since I know that I can do. I have come this far so I don't understand why I am allowing myself to give up.

I think you have the right idea. If we just get through today, and then tomorrow, we won't need those DO-OVERs anymore. Easier said than done right? Yeah, I know.

Well, good luck, I will email you and you email me if you want and see if we can't help one another. Later DONEY, Tina
